Update Rollup 1 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0

The Microsoft Dynamics CRM Sustained Engineering team released Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Update Rollup 1 on Monday, November 24, 2008.

Below is the link to the release and information on how to deploy it to your clients via AutoUpdate. Please see the Knowledge Base (KB) article for more details about the Update Rollup 1 content and instructions. The Update Rollup 1 client can be deployed before the server is upgraded to Update Rollup 1.

Making Update Rollup 1 available to your clients via AutoUpdate:

You can find more information about AutoUpdate in Eric Newell’s blog entry at http://blogs.msdn.com/crm/archive/2008/05/08/crm-client-autoupdate.aspx.

If you have a direct internet connection from your client machines, you can avoid some of the configuration steps and use the linkID directly. Below are the necessary steps to configure the AutoUpdate for Update Rollup 1.

Note: These are steps 5, 6 and 7 of Eric’s blog.

1. Create the configuration XML file and save it.



      <!--- *** UR1 PATCH -->



          <Title>Update Rollup 1 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 (KB 952858)</Title>

          <Description>Update Rollup 1 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 (KB 952858)</Description>

          <!--- *** This will make it Mandatory -->



          <ClientType>OutlookLaptop, OutlookDesktop</ClientType>





2. From the command prompt, go to the directory where the ClientPatchConfigurator.exe is located ([ServerInstallDir]\Tools and type microsoft.crm.tools.clientpatchconfigurator.exe [configfile].xml

3. Once the patch has been uploaded, launch the Outlook client

The dialog should now appear saying that “Update Rollup 1 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 (KB 952858” is available. If the <IsMandatory> is set to false, the client will only see the update if the user selects “Check for Updates” via the CRM Menu in the Outlook client.

Happy Holidays!

    Our client just installed Update Rollup 1 for CRM 4.0 Professional.

    I thought that I could verify that it was installed successfully by logging

    onto CRM, clicking the Help menu then About Microsoft Dynamics CRM. I was

    expecting to see the new build number of 4.0.7333.1113, but it still says


    How can I verify that Update Rollup 1 has been installed successfully?

  2. Andrew Jones says:

    I’ve just applied Rollup 2 but the client About page still shows 4.0.7333.3. It would be helpful if it displayed 4.0.7333.1312 so it is easier to work out if the client update has been applied.

  3. Phil Edry says:

    I would like to make an update config file for Rollup 2, and rather than using Eric’s approach, I’d like users to download from Microsoft like you’ve done here for Rollup 1. I understand how I’m supposed to find the PatchId, but where do I find the LinkId so that users are forwarded to the correct download?
